ON October 25 the MES Port Elizabeth Social Work Section and the God Restores Our World (GROW) project will be exchanging their offices, spades, brooms and black bags for golf clubs and goodie bags in a friendly fundraising golf tournament.

MES PE and the GROW project are only two of the projects whose clients and participants will benefit from the event.

In addition to their many other tasks, social workers Miranda Paulsen and Lindsay Smith also assess clients and provide every one with a unique and independent plan, while GROW is a job and life rehabilitation project for volunteers that provide participants with the opportunity to earn money through hard work.

“The two projects restore dignity, provide hope, nurture positive values and develop potential. With sufficient funding, MES PE can expand these projects to provide further training to those participants who show commitment,” said Alta van der Merwe, a fundraiser for MES PE.

Reggie Treadway and John Young, who will be participating in the golf tournament, are both MES PE success stories. Treadway underwent further training and now runs the GROW project, while Young is MES PE’s volunteer driver.

The golf tournament will take place on October 25 at the PE Golf Club. To book a 4-ball, tee or green, contact Miranda on 0715473805 or For more info on the projects, visit
